GOOD MORNING!! It's Friday (YAY) and today is the release of the most cutest and adorable stamps ever - THE PEEKERS 2 COLLECTION by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD. If you haven't seen the peekers and don't have the Peeker Fever then check them out. I have the honor of presenting "ALL PEEKED OUT PEEKER" . She can be used for several occasions, but I thought of Christmas in July so I thought why not? She reminds me of one of my granddaughters who loves to sleep - even on Christmas morning.

Instead of a Blog Hop we are calling this a Day of Inspiration. You can see the full roster at the store blog here and check out the 2 peekers not previewed. However, if you can't check out the store blog right now, please go over to Melanie's blog here. She is super talented and you wouldn't want to miss hers or the other Designers projects. I would also like to welcome Lorraine - she is our new DT sister. We also have 2 guests with us to help preview these cute - cute stamps. Susanna - Card of the Week and Janiel.

Of course, she is colored with Copics and the snowflakes are accented with Stickles. If you look closely around the edge of the background of the image and the Merry Christmas you can see some more sparkle and shine. I used the Deco Glamour Dust . It is sooooooo sparkly.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
The Corrosive Challenge - All About Kids
Ooh La La Creations - Circles
Pollycraft Monday Challenge - Christmas in July
Belli Challenge - Christmas in July
Crafty Creations - Christmas in July
Sweet Stampin - Christmas in July

The DP and embellishments are from my stash and are also very glitzy. However, the beautiful blue Kaisercraft Rhinestones are available at SCACD.

This adorable collection is ONLY available at SCACD and for international customers you can purchase them at Quixotic Paperie.

Thank you soooooo much for stopping by and please visit the other DT blogs if you have time.

Love You and Happy Birthday

Good Morning! How is everyone's week going so far? I just looked at this weekend's forcast and it is going to be 106 and 107 degrees. This is actual temperature not heat index. Think I will be staying indoors. Next week I will be going to Florida to the beach for a little relief and see my grandchildren. (YAY) My 88 year old Aunt had surgery so I wanted to make her a Get Well card and chose this beautiful stamp and wanted to make a vintage looking card. She isn't doing very well so I decided to give it to my mother for her 84th birthday in a couple of weeks. This image is "Tall Perfume Bottle"from the vault by Victoria Case.

All of the DP is Echo Park - Be Mine and Susana has it on sale right now. I embossed the image with gold and colored it with Copics. The pretty pearls are Kaisercraft Pearls and the beautiful pin is from the Dreamweaver Multi Color Pin Set. The large Black gold tipped rose is Sugar Blooms by Prima. These roses are already gold tipped and beautiful. The white rose are Prima Cameo Roses
which Susana also has on sale now.

Don't you just love the Trinkets? It is from Bo Bunny and Susana has a lot of different ones. The Love You is also from the same paper pack, I just cut it out from the paper I used on the inside of the card.

The inside of the card is not totally finished. I plan on stamping "Happy Birthday" in the center of the heart and write something below. All of this paper is also from Echo Park - Be Mine.

Thank you for stopping bye and be sure and check out the store blog for more fabulous creations.

Good Morning! Today is Friday (YAY)!!! I am so tickled and happy to be showcasing this bright and happy image - "DAISY DOLL" which is From the Vault by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD. Isn't she cute? Looks like she just jumped up out of her little pot to say Hello!!!

There are 2 From the Vault by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD and 2 From the Vault by Victoria Case for SCACD being released today.

I apologize for the picture not being very good. In this picture I was trying to capture the sparkle and shine from the gloss.

This card is simple but so bright and sparkly. The DP is so busy, bright, and glittery I really didn't need to use many embellishments. The image is colored with Copics and highlighted with Stickles. After the Stickles dried I put gloss over it to make it really shine. The flowers are from my stash and the little rhinestones on the DP are Kaisercraft Rhinestones. The butterfly is cut from another piece of the DP and popped up.

Please visit my DT sisters and check out their fabulous creations. You can get some great ideas as we all have different styles. Please check the store blog for more details.

These stamps are available at SCACD for US customers and International customers can purchase from Quixotic Paperie.

SHOPPING ALERT: Susana has 7 NEW PAPER PADS and 3 NEW CRAFTY INDIVIDUAL STAMPS (one is a holiday stamp).

Thank you for stopping by and hope all of you have a wonderful weekend!!!

Good Morning!! Did all of you have a wonderful 4th? It was soooo hot and dry here so all the fireworks were cancelled, but we still had fun and enjoyed good food with our neighbors.

Does this image remind you of your preteen and teenage daughters or grandaughters? If my grandaughters are not texting on their phones they are on the computer on FB or Skype. Since mine live out of state this image is perfect. It is LOL:) from the SWEET MEETS SASSY COLLECTION 2 by Victoria Case for SCACD. There are so many cute stamps in this collection. I want to color them all so I just might have to play hookey from work. (lol)

I did get my sewing machine to work for a little whilte so I added a little. Of course, she is colored with Copics and highlited with Stickles. The ribbon and flower are from my stash. Susana has some beautiful Kaisercraft Rhinestones to add the final dazzle.

I am entering the following challenges:

Paper Sundaes - Stitching
A Spoon Full of Sugar - Sewing
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Colour Create - Fuchsia, Green, and White
Cute Card Thursday - Technology
Allsorts Challenge - Free and Easy

Here is another angle. Don't look, I haven't finished the inside.

Thank you for stopping by and be sure and come back Friday.

Everyone have a wonderful week!!
